Silver Age Beyond
Melee - Vibrating Blade
A vibrating blade that cuts through forcefields.
Vibrating Blade (TL5): A sword or dagger is modified with an electrical apparatus so that, when a switch is flicked, the blade vibrates minutely but very quickly. A vibrating blade does no extra damage but it will cut through forcefields easier: A vibrating blade has 60 points of Forcefield penetration.
Roll damage percentage normally, but on a roll of 2, these weapons completely ignore the effects of all forcefields. Effectively Add PENETRATING (FORCE FIELD) 10 (-200 force field) on a natural damage percentage roll of 2.
- A humming sound always accompanies an active vibrating blade.
- Activation requires a fusion cell, which can last for 25 turns.
- Switching the blade on and off does not require an action.
